When Grammy Award winning guitarist Jason Vieaux performed on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series with Harpist Yolanda Kondonassis, they described him as, “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation.” And that's not hyperbole. Jason is in town to perform at the Hochstein Performance Hall on Saturday, March 21, but he carved out some time in his busy schedule to give us a preview on Backstage Pass with host Julia Figueras. You can hear his fleet fingers on Friday, March 20 at 1 PM, with a repeat on Sunday, March 22 at 1 PM.

A Strong Memorial baby and Greece Arcadia grad, Julia Figueras is the Music Director and mid-day host for WXXI-FM. She is also the producer and host for the award-winning monthly interview/performance show, Backstage Pass.
